I am a NZ citizen living in Mexico. I travel regularly to the US (usually just for visiting friends or for shopping).
I have been asked to work for a new US company, either as a remote/foreign employee or as a contractor.
However, due to my regular travel to the US, and due to my proximity the potential to even do short work trips (1-2 weeks), I am concerned that I may cross over what is allowed on my B1/B2 US Visa.
According to @dlanod's answer to Travel to USA while working remotely for US company, the B1 Visa allows for meetings, contract negotiations, training, and conferences, but I don't know whether I would also be allowed to actually visit the offices with my laptop and work for a week (while my family probably sight-sees).
With my B1 Visa am I legally OK to do work in the US for a US based company as a foreign-based employee? Or as a foreign-based contractor?
If relevant, the main reason to work at the offices for a week or two would be because this would enable us to conduct working meetings, so perhaps this fits under "consult with business associates"?
